Here in my Heart

This is a photo of my husband on one of our many visits to the Lake District (UK).

I wanted to scrap this photo as he has such a relaxed and wistful look on his face. He is looking across a lake with is back against a tree. The inspiration for this layout was a challenge from Scrap it with a Song
using lyrics from the song - My Heart will go On by Celine Dion.

I also used the following sketch from Page Maps.

as well as the following challenge from CSI - Color Stories Inspiration
I just love their challenges

I used the items highlighted:

  • Use stars - embellishments, paper with stars, etc.
  • Use glass or transparent elements or glass-like elements.
  • Use liquid mediums (e.g., paints, mists, Glossy Accents, inks, etc.).
  • Add something that sparkles or shines (or use glitter or Stickles).
  • Use a solid color in the background.
  • Use the composition of the image to inspire the design of your page.
  • Cut a slit in your embellishment to let it sit on the edge of an element.
TESTIMONY (CHOOSE AT LEAST 1--You need to have some sort of journaling for your page; not just a title, please)
  • The Star of the Show: Who's the star of the pictured event and why?
  • Stars: List the cast and identify their roles in the event.
  • Tell three quirky factoids about your subject (as inspired by the 3 drinks).
  • Write your journaling in the form of a recipe.
Inspiration words: stellar, indulge, effervescent -- these are meant as jumping off points for your journaling--not just titles (though you certainly can use these as your title; just please also have a story of some sort for your page).

I hope you like my creation and remember...

A day without scrapping is like a day without sunshine!
